TruNews is an hour-long daily news program for a Christian audience.

It is hosted by broadcaster and media man Rick Wiles.

Wiles got his start with Trinity Broadcasting Network mogul Paul Crouch (whom Wiles always refers to as Doctor Paul Crouch”). Crouch gave Wiles seed money after they parted ways so, in a sense, TruNews is a continuation of TBN.

TBN has been the stage from which the worst of Christendom’s false teachers expound their doctrines.

For those who wish to harm the Body of Christ, the most terrible damage is only possible when done from the inside; from wolves in sheep’s clothing who gain the trust of gullible parishioners then lead them astray.

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”

“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits.”

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the Will of My Father who is in Heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out demons, and in Your Name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” ~ Matthew 7:15-23 (NASU, capitalization added to correct disrespect)


Wiles is very big on “dreams” and “visions” and usually finds an excuse to mention his personal “visions” every other program. This has the effect of building up how important the dreamer is (having received a “personal revelation” from God) but rarely edifies the listener.

Edification is a critical tenet of the spiritual gifts and, without it, the “gift” is either useless or false.

I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification. ~ I Corinthians 14:5

The Believer is required to test all things—to think and not emote.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. ~ I John 4:1

…test everything; hold fast what is good. ~ I Thessalonians 5:21

If the “vision” is of some general future disaster it does little to edify the listener outside of basic preparedness but it does make the dreamer seem important.


Wiles bills himself as a source of real news—what some might call “Red Pill” or “Truther” information, but is he?

In May of 2014, Wiles interviewed Anglican Bishop Tony Palmer.

Palmer was the International Ecumenical Officer for the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches and the personal friend of Rome’s new Jesuit Pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

In early 2014, Palmer addressed a congregation of Pentecostals lead by another televangelist of ill-repute: Kenneth Copeland.

Palmer brought with him a personal message from Pope Francis regarding a hopeful push for an ecumenical future where the Protestant Church realizes that “the protest is over”.

In the message, Palmer told his audience, “…the Protest is over!” “The glory binds us together, not the doctrine…” and “we’ll sort out the doctrine later.” ~ Illuminati Unmasked, p. 782

In my book, Illuminati Unmasked, I contend that a Catholic Church ruled and lead by the Jesuits is the most dangerous and demonic force in the world. It controls the very foundations of American power from Intelligence to Finance; the CIA, FBI, NSA and Federal Reserve.

Is Tony Palmer’s happy and charismatic voice of ecumenical union really best for Rick Wiles’ audience? He obviously thought so.

Interestingly, Palmer died later in 2014 from a motorcycle accident.

As the Jesuits well know, it’s an axiom of assassination that “‘accidents’ work best” and operating a small, fast craft make “accidents” look good.

Former Director of the CIA William Colby died in a “boating accident”.1927

While looking in to a Nebraska pedophile sex slave ring, private investigator Gary Caradori died in a small plane crash with his son.1928

Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings died in a fiery car wreck1929. Subsequent investigations have proven that any of today’s processor-ridden vehicles can be remotely hacked and controlled to speed up and crash as his did.1930 ~ Illuminati Unmasked, p. 782

I had originally hoped that there may be some counter Counter-Reformation force of good that was playing by ruthless Jesuit rules but a contact I have in Christian media made an astounding accusation that I find sadly plausible: Tony Palmer was Jorge Bergoglio’s lover. As such, he was a “loose end” that could prove embarrassing to the Company of Loyola now that they have one of their own steering Rome directly instead of indirectly. He was murdered to keep Bergoglio out of public trouble.

To lend credence to this “conspiracy”, Bergoglio, himself, made a shocking statement just a few weeks after Palmer’s death: he, too, expected to die in just two or three years. Was this shock and paranoia at how well he found himself being controlled—and by his own brethren?

Are these the forces that guide Rick Wiles’ program from behind the scenes? At the very least, even a good Christian would feel overwhelming pressure to bow to this Whore of Babylon that has the power to kill the body at will but real Christians fear the One who judges the soul.

“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in fiery hell!” ~ Matthew 10:28


Controlled opposition “conservative” media like talk radio’s Rush Limbaugh or television’s Fox News are excellent at frothing up audiences on the symptoms of what ails them but never allowing them to focus on root causes. The same, sadly, is true of TruNews.

Wiles has particularly been addressing the horrible crimes of Islamic jihadists as they torture and slaughter Middle Eastern Christians wholesale (which is more than America’s pastors are doing) but never addresses the critical fact that Islamic jihad is being organized, directed and paid for by Western and, particularly American organizations like the CIA.

What that means is that the American people are directly responsible for the atrocities thanks to their own government and intelligence agencies yet Wiles never addresses this. Instead, he chooses to bring on CIA mouthpieces like “retired” analyst Clare Lopez whom Wiles interviewed, not once, but twice in a short span of weeks—once in August 2014 then again in January of 2015. Her disinformation on CIA crimes was enough for me to include one such interview in my book:

On September 11th, 2012, radical jihadists who had been running Libya since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi, raping, murdering and enslaving51 innocents there, stormed what mainstream media called an “embassy52” in Benghazi and killed the United States ambassador.

Immediately, the Obama Administration stated that this was a “spontaneous53” conflagration as a result of outrage over a YouTube video that no one had ever heard of called “The Innocence of Muslims”.

But, just as quickly, the story began to fall apart.

The apparent producer of the film disappeared and was later arrested.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was labeled as the Christian behind the film yet one of the actresses in it claimed the redundantly-named director professed to be a muslim.54

The quality of the film was less than amateur.

Mainstream media unquestioningly accepted the Obama Administration story but independent journalists found that the Canadian company that built the “Obamacare” website was the parent corporation for one of the outlets that helped promote “The Innocence of Muslims”.55

The mistress of former CIA Director David Petraeus, Paula Broadwell, leaked during a speech at her alma mater, the University of Denver56, that Benghazi was actually a CIA way-station used for interrogating prisoners.

More than that, Benghazi had become a funnel for weapons being taken from chaos-filled Libyan armories and secreted out to jihadists in Syria to help destabilize that nation as well. Saudi Arabia and Turkey were disclosed as helping British and American Intelligence (MI6 and the CIA) accomplish this agenda.57

The transfer of small arms to radical muslims from the CIA is a generational operation but when this transfer included man-portable SA-7 surface-to-air missiles stolen from Libyan armories, personnel at the State Department decided to intervene.58

Ambassador Christopher Stevens was dispatched to work with the jihadists, the Turks and the CIA. It later raised eyebrows to learn that the ambassador was reputed to have lived a homosexual lifestyle when he was in Chicago59. The Chicago homosexual connection would later be levied at Barack Obama, his former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and other key figures.60

According to CIA insider Clair Lopez, the Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin conveniently slipped out of his meeting with ambassador Chris Stevens just before the ambush started61. Leading some to believe the adage “once in the Firm, always in the Firm,” Lopez would later vehemently deny that the CIA was helping Libyan Islamists when interviewed by Christian news broadcaster Rick Wiles.62 ~ Illuminati Unmasked, pp. 7-8

In a recent broadcast, Rick Wiles opined, “When will the CIA and FBI wake up to the jihadist in the White House.” Clearly, not only are those respective organizations “awake” to that fact, they facilitated it. No one in “alternative media” is even remotely studied on this and remains ignorant of it. They are either unable to speak the truth or are unwilling.


A recent program featured a guest I had never heard of: Gordon Thomas.

Thomas was lauded as a senior BBC war correspondent. That immediately told me he was Machine-approved. Why was he on TruNews?

Also on Thomas’ resumé are more than a few books. His latest endeavor told me the reason for his appearance:

The Pope’s Jews: The Vatican’s Secret Plan to Save Jews from the Nazis

The very premise of such a book is so outrageous it offends the sensibilities.

The Vatican’s man during WWII—Pius XII—did so much to further the Nazi cause he has become known as “Hitler’s Pope”.

At the conclusion of WWII, Nazis leaders were given safe passage to South America by the power of the Vatican.

Germany is fighting to keep sealed the Adolf Eichmann files detailing the years the Holocaust chief logistical organiser spent on the run before he was captured by Mossad agents.

Those hoping to have a 50-year secrecy order overturned believe the government is embarrassed by details within that may prove German and Vatican officials colluded in his escape and freedom.

Indeed, the Church’s practise of protecting its own perpetrators of vicious crimes has already been well established with the tragic revelations of thousands of victims of child sex abuse by cleric paedophiles.

For the current papacy under the German pope, Benedict XVI, the 4,500 page Eichmann dossier could be the “smoking gun” that would shoot down his plans to canonize Pope Pius XII (1939-58), aka “Hitler’s Pope.” ~ Julian Kossoff, the Daily Telegraph330

In a series of policies enacted between 1871 to 1878 known as Kulturkampf (“cultural struggle”), Otto von Bismarck expelled the Jesuits from Prussia and Germany and did all he could to mitigate interference in German affairs by the Vatican.

In Germany, partly in response to the “divisive” dogma of [Vatican I’s Papal] infallibility, Bismarck began his Kulturkampf (“culture struggle”), a policy of persecution against Catholicism. Religious instruction came under state control and religious orders were forbidden to teach; the Jesuits were banished; seminaries were subjected to state interference; Church property came under the control of lay committees; civil marriage was introduced in Prussia. Bishops and clergy resisting Kulturkampf legislation were fined, imprisoned, exiled. ~ Hitler’s Pope, John Cornwell322

These slights put Germany in the crosshairs of the most dangerous people on Earth: the Jesuits. ~ Illuminati Unmasked, pp. 98, 101

Hitler, himself, could thank the Jesuits for his rise to power.

Adolf Hitler’s “tour de force”, Mein Kampf was so heavily edited by a vehemently anti-Semitic Jesuit priest it was practically ghost-written by him.

Otto Strasser was a key figure in the Nazi Party of the 1930’s. During Adolf Hitler’s brief stint in prison, Strasser’s brother Gregor shared rulership of the party with Gottfried Feder. It was an unhappy partnership with the Strasser brothers emphasizing the socialist part of the National Socialist Party inasmuch as they pushed for urbanization of the commoners and state control of land315. They were true Luciferian visionaries and their efforts would later be renewed under United Nations “Agenda 21”.

Strasser would write an exposé on his time with Adolf Hitler titled Hitler and I.316

In it, he made the astounding statement that Mein Kampf was a chaotic mess of rants that was completely reorganized by a Jesuit priest. ~ Illuminati Unmasked, p. 96


Jesus proscribed the regimen for approaching a brother you disagree with. If a Christian does not first take the matter to the fellow Christian in order to allow them to respond [Matthew 18:15-20], they have failed. A public reproof can rightly be considered of to have come from an “accuser of the brethren”. [Revelation 12:10]

I have corresponded frequently with Wiles’ producers but never been allowed to do so directly. This is indicative of a great many supposed Christian endeavors where those in the public spotlight show no interest in responding to anyone that doesn’t offer them something in return. They often lament about how “overwhelmed” they are with e-mail but e-mail from the right people always get responded to.

My endeavors have been to disclose the Luciferian black hidden hand that his strangling America and I have a great many citations and work to back it up but TruNews hasn’t been interested.

Perhaps there isn’t anything I have written on that matches well with their agenda.

    very interesting post! I have been wondering about this after listening to his show from Thursday 6/25/15…He mentioned having a dream where Jesus appeared to him dressed as a bishop, in white with a red ‘over cloak’, a bishop hat and staff…I thought that was really ‘odd’ for Jesus to appear in such attire…additionally, he mentions a dream that his daughter-in-law had where a female angel gave her a message…this made me pause too, because there is no place in the bible where an angel of God is female.

    • Thanks Amy.

      The mere fact that Wiles repeated USES these “dreams” of his is proof that he’s a fraud.

      They’re a great parlor trick and they’re completely unverifiable but they work real well to get the gullible to become worked up with fear and paranoia.

  • Vane Speer says:

    Thank You Lord Jesus for honoring your word in Matthew 10:26 may you give us the courage to stand for you when they come to destroy our bodies; that if… only by our faith in you and our faulted obedience up to that point may prompt your mercy to call us into your kingdom. “America Christians” our hour is close at hand. Many will fall down slain and few will enter in but as for me I will fear only the Lord. America the hour as come and gone we are not going to hell we have arrived and you Lord Jesus are the brethren’s only escape. I will not ask that you bless America only that you remember those of us that fear and have tried to obey you. Amen

  • Robin Johnson says:

    I have wondered about TrueNews, as well…Just didn’t quite pass the smell test on numerous occasions! Thank you for having the guts, Johnny. So few do! Blessings in Yahshua’s holy name.

  • MissDebra says:

    I have wondered also. There is never glory given to God, no healings, no deliverances, no salvations, no miracles. Only one dire hopeless story after another. Reminds me of Tokyo Rose.

  • helen says:

    I have wondered about TruNews. There seem to be some sketchy Prophesies and I heard Rick state that he wanted $100,000 to cover some costs of the studio he is wanting to transition to. Right after that he brought on a man who says he is a prophet and that the Lord speaks to him in rhyme. They were trying to claim that all 501 C 3 churches are evil and that they silence people. They do not. John Hagee endorsed McCain in 08 so it does not look like his 501 C 3 status stopped him. The only thing you cannot do is have a campaign event and push a candidate in your pulpit or lobby substantially on political issues to where it is the majority of your ministry. You can stand on moral values. It seems that if everyone leaves the 501 C 3 churches, (I wondered about the timing of Rick Wiles asking for money and then right after that bringing on a man who says he is prophesying against the 501 C 3), just what would happen. Where would those listeners who left a 501 C 3 send their tithes? Rick WIles did mention that he is not a 501 C 3, so it follows, I guess, that they could send all their tithes to him. I felt very disturbed in my spirit about this. In fact, I am glad to be in a church where the bible is preached but I don’t have to see my church turned into some candidate’s campaign event.

  • Kerrie Ramirez says:

    I’ve wondered why the,”True,” in,”Tru”News is spelled wrong. You’d think that if you’re telling the truth,true would not be spelled wrong.

  • Barbara disbrow says:

    TRUNEWS and their attitude toward money tells me plenty. Jesus never asked anyone for money for his ministry. TRUNEWS acts like you have to have the latest technology to share the gospel .I guess they do not need the Holy Spirit. They are being sucked into AI and it’s demonic realm.

  • shelley says:

    The fake ‘christians’ are flooding the internet. I remember Mr Wiles saying he was leaving and going away to study the Bible because he couldn’t stand it anymore. He came back the next week bigger and better than before. Most of the professional watchmen have done the same thing, and are doing the conference/book rounds, so follow the money. Im sticking to the Bible, the only Truth left on nasa’s planet.

  • Adam says:

    I perceive Rick Wiles to be genuine in his faith, only mistaken that certain experiences he has are God-inspired and miraculous in nature.. I don’t believe anyone on this board even raised that possibility, which shows their bias against him. Rick Wiles wrong = Rick Wiles liar. It’s a very shortsighted way of looking at it. He loves God and fears for where this country, and the world, is headed, currently at warp-speed. All I hear TruNews report is all the insane evil being carried out by the Globalists. I’ve got a great read on people and I can tell Rick Wiles is the real deal. Also, Jesus told his followers to give 10% of their earnings to God. God told Adam and Eve to give sacrifices to God. So the Bible never saying to give money to Godly endeavors is just a false point in this article.

    • “Rick Wiles: WRONG” and “Rick Wiles: LIAR” is an emotional reaction that is not an accurate description of my concerns here, Adam.

      There is nothing more important that the role the Catholic Church is playing as the Great Harlot behind the system of Mystery Babylon. Wiles knows this yet refuses to alert the Body of Christ.

      By the Contract of the Watchman on the Wall in Ezekiel 33, Wiles stands CONDEMNED.

  • Marti says:

    I have listened to Rick Wiles for some time and am somewhat skeptical. They do have some good information but I get the impression that Wiles himself is a very controlling person. He is also very inconsistent. Who is he accountable to and where does he get the funds to do all the stuff he does? He comes across as very arrogant and seems to blame Jews for all the ills of the world, stating they crucified Jesus. The Jews gave Jesus over to be crucified but the Gentiles (Romans) actually carried out the act (a minor detail he seems to ignore), so in essence both Jew and Gentile were enemies of the cross andmankind’s reconciliation with God is thru Jesus Christ. Many of his staff have been here today, gone tomorrow with no explanation as to where they went. There was Zack Drew (formerly a trainee of Jim Bakker), then a female who reported and then disappeared. Finally, as of this writing there was Kerry Kinsey who just evaporated from the news desk. Wiles gave a public explanation for why Drew left, but no word on the other two. Also I have written to ask about Kinsey but got no response. Finally – he tends to start and stop things. He has repeatedly gone thru stages where he is wore down from presenting the news and goes to a format of Bible teaching and worship, then for no reason leaves that to return to “reporting” the news. He seems angry and bitter. Also has appeared on Jim Bakker show and pumped him up as being a spiritual father, now tears him down. Seemed he was cozying up to Bakker to get something and once he got whatever he dropped him like a hot potato. These are just my observations but he comes across as an opportunist and one moment he mocks the elite and dares them to come after him to moments where he appears to be cowering for fear of what they will do to him. Rick Wiles needs much prayer.

    • Blaming Jews is a foundational smokescreen for Rome, Marti. Wiles has Her approval whether he knows it or not.

      The same for Bakker: he was promoted and resuscitated because he humiliates real Christians.

  • T says:

    His book “ Final Day” is heavily laced with Catholic doctrine. He may well be one who is sent to deceive.

  • Celeste S says:

    I have come to this site after seeing Rick broadcasting Milo Yiannopoulos an “Ex”gay of 2 months and a worshipper of Saint Joseph. Rick came down with Covid upon Milo entering and allowed this to be seen as a ‘spiritual’ attack. Rick wouldn’t know how to fight in the Spirit let alone identify the Spirit. I asked myself how can this guy be so naive? This is a stunt and now I am asking myself how could I have been so naive to have believed this ministry was from the Lord. Paul records not to let a person with such a bad reputation in the ministry as a leader yet this falls short on Trunews. Paul also said not to let a young immature christian have lead unless the devil take hold. I guess 2 months is good enough for Rick! Upon emailing Rick about the concerns of the body his ‘team’ emailed me back telling me that I should check my grace. After praying over this I have come to see Trunews is NOT worthy of our Lord and setting an example! My eyes are no longer blinded to these end times ministries that are sure to fall.
